Dua'a Al-Mashlool

This supplication known as supplication of the youth stricken for his sin, is quoted from the work of Kaf-ami and from Muhaj al Da-wat by Sayyid ibn tawus. Through Imam hussain it is reported that one day he and his father, after performing Hajj, caught sight of a paralysed young man crying his eyes out in repentance. They went near to console him and find out the reason of his sorry plight. He was a habitual sinner, always teased his father, disobeyed him and treated him with contempt. One day, disgusted, the father invoked curse upon him. So he was affected with paralysis. Then and there Ali ibna Talib wrote his duaa and gave it to him with instruction to recite after Isha salat. Next day fully cured, as fit as a fiddle, he came to Imam Ali and said that he had recited the duaa as told and went to sleep. He saw the Holy prophet in the dream. The holy prophet, gently touched his body with his hand and asked him to remember this duaa as it contain ismi azam (the great name of Allah). Recite this duaa after Isha salat. It brings countless blessings. All your legitimate desires will be fulfilled. It drives away poverty and sickness. Sins are for given. Debts are cleared. Enemies become friends. Domestic affairs are set aright. Disputes are settled in your favour. Prisoners are set free mental worries disappear. Prosperity, sound mind and healthy body stand by you at all times. Mercy and forgiveness of sins are the main advantages the almighty Allah makes available if this duaa is recited regularly. Recite it on Fridays.

وَقَدْ دَعَوْتُكَ كَما اَمَرْتَنى فَافْعَلْ بى ما

and I call upon Thee even as Thou hast commanded me --

اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ يا كَريمُ

So, do unto me what pleases Thee to do, O Generous One!

وَالْحَمْدُ للهِِ رَبِّ الْعالَمينَ

And all Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds,

وَصَلَّى اللهُ عَلى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ اَجْمَعينَ

and the blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad and all His Holy Descendants.
